The winter weather can often present drivers with a number of dangerous road conditions. Snow and ice can push your vehicle to its mechanical limit so it is important to know that it can handle these tough conditions. You should always be prepared; in case you’re faced with a dangerous situation or get held up in lengthy traffic jams.
According to national statistics, breakdowns double in the UK throughout the winter period due to adverse conditions. Research has found that drivers are six times as likely to have a crash, and this number increases when ice and snow are an added hazard. Insurance claims also tend to increase around this time of year as a result of these added dangers.
